Linda had her first jump runner of the autumn today and it proved to be an encouraging start. Mab Dab competed in a 2 and a half mile conditional jockeys handicap hurdle at Plumpton. Ridden by Jack Sherwood he was soon prominent, travelling in second place for the first circuit and a half. He pushed on with the leader down the back straight but came under pressure from two horses from further back turning for home. He kept going, jumping well, to the line and finished a pleasing third.
